Monday Moment: Up and at ’em

M Aurelius_privilege to be alive quote w logo

I know, I know. Unless you’re waking up in a beachside villa or similarly lavish spot today, you probably rolled your eyes the moment you saw this quote. Mondays mornings often don’t exactly make us feel the magic of being alive. It’s ok, because it’s still true. So, even if maybe the first few moments (hours) of the day don’t feel especially delightful, that doesn’t mean the day is a total loss.

Maybe it’s possible that at some point before your Monday wraps up, you can find one moment in which it does feel that way. One moment of gratitude, contentment, or peace, before returning to your inbox and the competing demands and responsibilities of your day. One mindful breath that reminds you how fairly amazing it is that breathing is something you can – and must – do, for the privilege of being able to do and feel and be so much more beyond it.

Have a happy week. :)
